This regular that has taken up residence in the shop was leaking from between the rear of the transmission and axle housing at the bottom of the housing so today we put it on the splitting stand and pulled the axle housing away from the tranny. There was no gasket. Is there supposed to be a gasket? I would think there should be. Thanks. Jim

LOL! I had to Google vellumoid to know what you were talking about. Vellumoid is a gasket MFGR. Thanks for the quick answer. Jim

Yea, they are paper resin gaskets. Buy a sheet of gasket material and cut yourself a new one, I use aviation form-a-gasket with them.

In the 1890's, a professor of chemistry at Amherst College discovered that certain paper, when impregnated with a solution of glue and glycerin, was transformed into a crackle parchment-like material that was waterproof, oilproof and greaseproof. Because of it's parchment-like quality, the material was called "Vellumoid" (meaning "like vellum or parchment"). Since our humble beginnings, Vellumoid Incorporated has become a major producer of gaskets for automobiles, trucks, and miscellaneous sealing applications.

Should be able to get gasket paper sheets at any auto parts store, Farm stores carry it here too. Or just silicone it like old F20 does

I do have black RTV and it is a good way to seal it up. I might be a little too particular for my own good, but if there was a gasket there origionally I tend to lean toward making a gasket for it. Another thought I had was this sealer CIH has for sealing the surface where the axle housing meets the rear end casting on a 1086 and similar models. You probably know what I'm talking about. Comes in a little squeeze tube and is purplish-red in color. This stuff was used in place of a gasket when the tractor came from the factory but It could be the tolerances and warpage might be wider on this old tractor than they are on a more modern one. Jim

Our local Ace hardware has gasket paper too, as well as the auto parts stores.

36F30,

Do you mind my asking what farm store you get your gasket paper from?

Fleet Farm no longer carries it around here, and TSC carries a little roll - but it is quite small. My husband used to get much larger/wider rolls of the stuff.

Thanks.

Orschlens, TSC, And Shoppers Supply all carry it here. Arnold Motors and NAPA too.
Never asked at Oreilly's but they probably have it.
I have better luck with bigger sheets from Arnold Motor Supply.
None of them were big enough to make gaskets for the final drive cases on my 30 so I just made them in strips and sealed it with Aviation form-a-gasket.

Just looked up Fel Pro gasket material at O'reilly's they have sheets 36" wide and rolls up to 50 yards.

I buy my gasket material from McMaster-Carr. 36" wide and in 5, 10 or 15 feet lengths I think. They have 1/16", 1/32" and 1/64" thicknesses and they have 1/8" cork sheets plus different types of hi-temp gasket material.

36F30,
Thanks will save this info for my husband. Our TSC only had a small narrow roll and they said that is all they carry anymore. And yes, it is too narrow for some applications. Thanks again.
